Hey guys, I've started learning Java in Eclipse, and I couldn't find any forum answers or documentation about rescaling an image in Window Builder. It's quite daunting seeing as I'm new to programming, so I may have overlooked something.

I've put an image on the frame, but I want to scale the image 'image_1.png' to 200%.

JLabel lblNewLabel = new JLabel("");
lblNewLabel.setIcon(new ImageIcon(builder.class.getResource("/resources/image_1.png")));
lblNewLabel.setBounds(10, 7, 122, 22);

Is this also how I correctly should add an image to my window builder (Using a label?).

WindowBuilder does not offer any sort of image scaling function.

That capability would be dependent on the widget you use. As far as I know, the standard Swing JLabel does not offer that feature, so you would need to find a widget that does or scale the image yourself before applying it to the JLabel.
